      I agree, the loss of life is a tragedy, but it is a disaster for the Nigerian Air Force.
      Why only about the Nigerian Air Force then .. and what does it matter to us ..
      Or is this a continuation of black life ..
      They probably do not care where our guys are dying.
      I just don't understand the meaning of the news on VO

    Apparently the top management flew, judging by the type of aircraft.

    The cost of the plane is about three million dollars. About 7000 aircraft were built. The model is widely used in general aviation, as an aircraft for corporate transport.
    Most likely, the bosses were carrying them. Maybe I ran into a flock of birds? But what's the difference, people can't be returned.

    Pay attention to the color of the water, which is used to extinguish the wreckage. It is banal from a puddle, well, here's what you need to know about the culture of using aircraft of the Nigerian Air Force.

    According to Reuters, the plane was heading for Minna, a city located 110 kilometers northeast of the capital Abuja. The cause of the plane crash was an engine failure. Note that the pilot managed to take the faulty aircraft away from residential areas, which reduced the number of casualties - the plane crashed in the middle of the field.

    According to the latest information, the aircraft was controlled by a senior lieutenant of the Nigerian Air Force. His surname is called - Gazama.

    Honor and Glory to the Hero.

      A hero? Ditch a plane with passengers - become a hero? I understand, you can call us a hero of the pilot who ruined the Polish leadership, but not everyone in a row can be called heroes? Nigeria has done nothing bad to us, unlike Poland.
